“We firmly believe our responsible way of operating gives our clients the extra trust and comfort they need during current troubled times”, says Mikki Koskinen, Managing Director of ESL Shipping.
The past year was the first full year with present company structure and fleet. In 2018, AtoB@C Shipping was included in to figures from 1st of September and Viikki and Haaga from the first commercial voyage. Therefore, we saw a huge increase in distance sailed compared to 2018 which contributed to the increased emissions as well. In 2020, our main environmental target is to perform large scale trials using biodiesel and biogas in our ships
